    I’m still here! On Day 11 and I have an ear infection. I must have really been toxic! Being cleansed, that’s for sure. Some food boredom but I’m hanging in there okay. How is everyone else??? Roll Call! Dianne

    Greetings Fellow Whole30 Soldiers!!! Great news for me! I just got to pretend I skipped a day! Went to do my Day By Day reading only to discover I’m on Day 8, rather than Day 7. Whoot Whoot!! Okay, @Elizabeth33, I officially feel (major) icky too! That lovely combo of nausea mixed with some form of starvation and officially in bed. I’ll pull out of this parking space somehow eventually! Time is my friend. The longer I go without crap in my system the closer I come to health and that coveted Tiger Blood I so clearly recall from Round 1. Yippee! @Michele B. keep the Bionic Hiking Woman in your neck of the mountains for now. The very thought is dizzying! BUT you kept up!!! Stellar job! She didn’t have to leave you dead along the trail! I’m so impressed. You more than earned that yummy banana and almond butter. Way to go. Way to represent our Team Whole30! @HoustonLiving, how are you doing?? Still making a smart choice for you by staying away from social scenarios?? To each and every one of you, thanks for being the wind beneath my wings! Carry On! Dianne in Day 8

    Round Two of Whole30 starting August 4th. Anyone with me??

    Hmmm. I thought I was starting Day 7 today, but I can now see I’m actually beginning Day 8, Round 2. Yayyyy! Clearly my memory has not improved yet! However I am experiencing decreased shoulder pain. My boyfriend’s arthritis symptoms in his hands have also dramatically improved. Good deal! I’ll take it! Off to read Day By Day, Day 8. Love that little book! What Day is everyone else at??? Any progress reports?? Be encouraged one and all! Dianne

    Good morning my fellow troopers!! @CCLaymon, I am on Day 7 and am definitely glad that I started over!! One of the best reasons for not “cheating” is you don’t have to go backwards and start fresh! I’m still detoxing pretty strongly as I have been up all morning getting sick to my stomach, with a nasty headache. I’m so happy that I’m making progress even if detoxing is a challenge! My boyfriend, who started over with me, is experiencing a pretty dramatic decrease in arthritis symptoms in his hands. My shoulder pain (torn rotator cuff) is much less prevalent. Hip Hip Hooray!! The beginning signs of progress! I’ll take it! @CCLaymon aren’t you the role model, going through so many changes and tossing a cruise into the picture too. Hats off to you! Great job! So glad your son is doing well too!!! Well, time to read my Day 7, of Whole30 Day By Day. That little book and the support here on the forum sustain me and grow me. I love it! No special Labor Day Weekend plans for this girl. Overall, keep it simple, and keep moving onward and upward. I simply treasure you all! Till next time, Dianne

    @wp3, Outstanding results! I’m back at Day 7 because I fell down once. I am absolutely thrilled for you and sooo proud of you! I love it! @hmg1993 way to go as well! I agree with your findings as well. I am so proud of you two I could burst (almost)! It is stuff like the two of you that hero’s are made of! Or at least Hope 4 Overcomers! I’ll carry on troops! Day 7 and who’s counting?? Me of course!! How is everyone else doing?????? Gentle Hugs! Dianne

    @Michele B.. Good morning ya’ll! Great morning devotional by @Michele B.! Yes, it’s true, the rationalizing the whole bit. But food then remains our go to coping method and oh, the lies we believe! Its great indeed not tracking food and feeling myself a bit lighter. My goals are to break some patterns, eliminate some culprits, and kick the inflammatory beast out the door screaming. VICTORY! Thanks for your homemade devotional rather than cookies @Michele B.! You too, be encouraged! Dianne

    Dear Beloved Whole30ers! You, one and all are the very best. I find you all to be so totally genuine, authentic, encouraging even in hard times...so much more. Just want to add that the whole of your various contributions always, never fails, to mean so much to me as an individual. I can always relate to one part or another. Am always encouraged and feel so much love for you all. Day 5 and hanging tough. I’ve definitely seem to have lost a little weight. Don’t know if it’s just water weight or not. I’m counting it as a good side benefit though. No scale. Enjoy your days, friends! Dianne

    Great post @Elizabeth33! The Negotiator. I like that. I could relate to all you said except the perfect sounding meals. Mine just didn’t sound good. My shoulders even hurt PT and detox, plus I’m going to bed by 8:00. Prayers you can find a bone of kindness to toss at your boss tomorrow for your sake. Love your posts. Keep em coming everybody! Even Now, Be encouraged! Dianne

You’re doing great! I’m so proud of you. Definitely a biggie! Glad you are in the mix now and are doing this for yourself. Yayyy you! Be Encouraged! You’re Doing It! Dianne
